Jackie Welles, a loyal friend, a soul brother, and the man who’s got your back in the vast and intimidating landscape of Night City even at the cost of his own life. It sounds like an obituary because it is and yet no amount of words will do justice. This endearing character befriends a freshly clan-free V as a Nomad, saves corporate V from the wrath of a betrayed Arasaka, and helps Street Kid V talk their way out of an arrest.
In all life paths, V goes on to form an incredible bond with Jackie Wells and they remain close friends and allies through it all and no matter what you do as whichever version of V you’re playing, there is no saving Jackie Wells in the Heist mission. Now, you will be left with the tough decision of choosing where to send Jackie Welles’ remains. There are three options to choose from. Here’s a look at them along with their outcomes.
At the end of the Heist mission, Delamain, the car’s AI will offer to send Jackie’s remains to a location of your choice free of charge. These are the conversation options that will appear before you:
- Nowhere. Wait for me here. (gold)
- Take him home, to his family. (gold)
- Take him to Vik Vektor’s clinic. (gold)
- Just… give me a minute. (Blue)
As we’ve explained in this article, the gold options are the ones that bear consequences in a conversation, so you need to seriously consider only the first three options.
Choice 1 and 2 will lead to the same conclusion, i.e, you will unlock the Heroes side quest. If you choose option 3 and send his remains to Vik Vektor’s clinic, you will only face the consequences much later in the game so it’s still a big mystery.
Regardless of which choice you make, Mama Wells will eventually give the keys to Jackie’s bike, the much-coveted Arch Nazare Motorcycle. The only difference is in regards to how you will get the bike. So Mama Welles will either give you the keys during Jackie’s ofrenda or send you a package with the key in the Vik Vektor choice. One way or another, the bike is yours if you want it.
